Hi Ya'll, I just have one small question. Yesterday when I turned my rig on the cooler wasn't working. I noticed this after three minutes. I smelled something burning but since it cam from a different direction I had no idea that it was my proccesor. Windows XP rebooted itself and I was thrown into the bios, only saw alot of red numbers (red's never good....). The proccesor was around 80 degrees and the CPU-cooler was below 200 RPM. When I noticed this I took of the side and checked the cooler....it was barely spinning. I turned everything off immidiatlly and called up the store and asked them for advise. I could come over and get a new cooler for free (Justcooler 8 CM block, big & red), they looked at the proccesor but couldn't find any clear burnmarks, only some exhaust (don't know the excact english word). Back home I installed the proc & the new cooler (with some fresh coolingstuff). I couldn't boot into Windows XP normally so I went into safemode and backed up all my important stuff (mostly my collection of porn......Viva la Internet ) like favorites, savegames, e-mails & contacts. Did a fresh install of Windows XP and complete Windows Update. Installed my games again, Vid-card & Media Player stuff. Everything seems to work fine again. Now my question: Am I lucky or can I expect serious trouble in the upcoming weeks? Is it wise to buy a new proccesor (Athlon XP's aren't so expensive anymore)? My spec's AMD Athlon 1.4 Ghz 266 Mhz 512 MB's DDR 266 Mhz Asus A7M266 266 Mhz Bios update 1007 Geforce 2 GTS Detonator 23.11 Creative Audigy Platinum JBL Stereospeaker & Woofer 3Com 3C980 Server-Link Maxtor 30 Giga 7200 RPM UDMA-100 Aopen DVD Slot-In 16X40 Aopen CD-RW 12X10X40 Aopen HX-08 Housing with 300 PSU Dell 17 Inch monitor Microsoft Intellimouse Optical Microsoft Natural Keyboard Pro Windows XP Home Edition with all the latest updates Wanadoo ADSL 512 Kbit down I hope this is enough info, can someone please advise since I have no knowledge on this subject. I always build everything myself EXCEPT the proccesor, the stores always put that one in (yesterday I learned that it isn't very difficult so I will do it myself in the future ). The cooler is now running on 3000 RPM, the proc is around 55 degrees stressed and the mobo is around 35 degrees. Any info would be greatly appreciated. P.S: Does anyone have English drivers for the Audigy card? I only have the Dutch driver CD and would really like the English ones. I don't know how big they are.
